It Was a Dark and Rainy Day...

The kitchen light bulbs blew and it's quite dark today. It's one of those brooding Spring days when there isn't much light making it through the new canopy of leaves and gray clouds. The rain's steady, too. I'm waiting for one of the guys to show up with new tubes when I read the news that Maurice Sendak has died. As my Mom would've said, the angels are crying.

And that's just the start of the news today.

The horses are beautiful in their natural state....left to their own devices they will likely die out in a few years from inbreeding. Surely, this is nature and not something to be messing with. Still, it's hard to see them fade away.
Hope you get your lights back soon. It's grey and dismal here as well, rained all night.

The gentleman with the unusual hood ornaments takes the cake. We require licenses for so many things that are less important than parenting. Bah.

That's sad about Sendak. My kids loved "Where the wild things are"
